The most likely view of many a Vegas vacationer is a spinning slot machine and a hotel pool — not photographer Vincent Laforet, who’s view of the city’s crazed casino buildings and animated architecture began at an altitude of 10,800 feet.

Australian photographer Tom Blachford presents the latest instalment of his series of modernist architecture photography Midnight Modern, a body of work that captures iconic Palm Springs mid-century residences in the chilling light of a full moon. Used to seeing these modernist landmarks in the harsh light of the desert sun, we are mesmerised by Blachford’s nocturnal images and their mysterious atmosphere reminiscent of a classic American film noir setting.

A Hanukkah Celebration That Riffs On the New Eatery’s Menu

Marking the festival of lights, Ben Murphy’s still lifes of schmaltzed radishes, bagels and half-sour pickles set amid rarefied tableware are inspired by English restaurateur Russell Norman’s newest endeavor, Mishkin’s. A charming homage to the vanishing world of London’s east end cafes of the 30s and 40s, Norman’s “kind-of Jewish deli with cocktails” mixes in themes from New York’s Lower East Side.
